    This brooch arrived recently. This is a pretty, old brooch. It is marked on the back, Made in USA and has a star with an S inside. Any ideas about this maker, I am not familiar with it. Hope you enjoy looking

      Lovely double flower vintage brooch, it resembles a Coro Duette to me, but I do not recognize that mark & hope someone here will know. Very nice find!

      Jenni, thanks. I agree, It does resemble a duette from front, but it is a single closure pin in back.

      I love these old brooches. The Maryanne Dolan book Collecting Colored and Rhinestone Jewelry has a large section on old jewelry marks. I would look there for a reference. The enameling is in great condition and you have the petal stones, too. Wonderful find.

      MrsT. Go to “researchingcostumejewelry” and look under “S”. There is a write up on the “S” inside the star, and if it is accompanied with “Made in USA, it could be made by Fred Grey Corp....we learn something new all the time on CW, do we not?
      And I agree with Maureen, the enameling is very good considering how old this wonderful piece must be.

      MrsT - you have such gorgeous taste! Hard to find enamel pins that are so perfect. I love it! We all know that many of our Grannies let us play dress up w/clothes and jewels we shouldn't have....
